Vodafone Fijian football coach Christrophe Gamel believes that the Rewa side have to be consistent with their performance.

This was after they were held to a 0-0 draw by Dreketi in their Vodafone Premier League clash at Subrail Park, Labasa, yesterday.

Gamel told SUNsports that one of the frustrating things in playing any sport is the inability to play the game at a consistent level.

“Whatever game you are playing, it is important to educate yourself in all areas of the game,” he said.

“The Rewa team need to keep up with their performance and consistency.”

Gamel closely monitored the performance of the players who could make the national team to play Malaysia in July. He said that they were also looking to recruit players for the Under-19 World Cup later this year.

Gamel said he wanted players to come away from the kick and chase football culture which has been present in Fiji for decades.

“Football has changed over the years and there was a need for the players to play possession- based football to take football to another level.

“We were provided with an opportunity to play Malaysia in July which is good for football. The Vodafone Premier League would provide me with the chance to look at players who could be part of the national team.”

Gamel said the selection criteria would not change as he wants players to play according to his style of football.

Dreketi manager Luke Nasaro said they were able to keep the Vodafone Fiji FACT champions Rewa from scoring and the players did well.

“We need to work on our finishing so we can improve in our next game against Suva,” Nasaro said.

Rewa interim coach Lorima Dau said their performance was below par as he was expecting more from the players.

“The team didn’t work hard enough every time they had the ball while Dreketi fought to the end,” he added. Today at 1pm, Rewa take on Labasa at the same venue.
